Kids For Wish Kids

Kids For Wish Kids is a Make-A-Wish program that enables local children to do it all -- organize, raise funds and manage their programs with support from parents or teacher advisors. This hands-on experience helps kids to see first-hand how they can impact another kid’s life by helping grant his or her wish.

As kids, you are responsible for forming committees, coming up with fundraising ideas and carrying them out. Teachers and parents often serve as advisors, but ownership of the group belongs solely to you and the other kids involved.

Wish Makers On Campus

Through Wishmakers On Campus, college students rally together to plan and coordinate fundraising campaigns to help Make-A-Wishgrant more wishes to kids with life-threatening medical conditions.

Wishmakers on Campus is a program designed for schools to give their students the opportunity to raise funds to grant the wishes of our local children with life-threatening medical conditions to enrich the human experience with hope, strength and joy.
